Accreditation and Licensing


Las Vegas is more than just casinos and nightclubs, bright lights, and stage shows. Las Vegas is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, an economic powerhouse, and an outdoor enthusiast's dream. It's also home to The Art Institute of Las Vegas. That may not be glamorous or glitzy, but for students who plan to enter a creative profession, it's very important.

Las Vegas may be known as the entertainment capital of the world--after all, where else can someone see a pyramid, a Roman palace, the canals of Venice, the Eiffel Tower, and the tallest free-standing building west of the Mississippi, all in a quick spin around town? It's quite different from the view of the early Spanish colonials who used the place as just another watering post on a trade route from Santa Fe to Los Angeles.

This unique city offers an eclectic array of museums, including the Neon Museum, a museum devoted to organized crime and law enforcement, the National Atomic Testing Museum, and the Las Vegas Natural History Museum.

For those who love the great outdoors, Las Vegas offers the kind of mild desert weather that makes it even more enjoyable to hike Red Rock Canyon or the Valley of Fire, explore the nearby Grand Canyon or Hoover Dam, or go boating on Lake Mead, the largest man-made lake in the whole country.
